Album Review: Michael Monroe - One Man Gang



Since his 1987 debut solo record, 'Nights Are So Long', former Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe has been blessing our ears with pure unadulterated all killer, no filler rock 'n' roll.

Monroe's 11th studio effort, 'One Man Gang', is a record for the times, with Donald Trump in power, the never-ending Brexit chaos in the UK, and the plant on the brink of collapse.

However, the rocker shows us that we all need to have a little "P.M.A." – positive mental attitude – in these times, otherwise we risk going insane.

The opening title track is like taking that first sip of whisky after a hard week, and before you know it - by the end of the album - you've knocked back the entire bottle.

The escapist record is filled to the brim with filthy pedal to the metal riffs.

Standout track 'Junk Planet' is immaculate, with the fast-paced rolling vocals, epic guitar and Steven Tyler-esque harmonica seamlessly bouncing off the other.
